My Birthday Prayer.... :-D

Yes yes!  The 26th was MY day!  :-D :-D :-D 

For those who did not know... just so you know for next year and the years beyond... my birthday happens every year on the 26th of February! :-D  I am so glad I missed the 29th by a few days... But not my brother... He has to wait every 4 years so I'm guessing he saves a lot of money on birthday gifts and parties haha! 

But anywayz, as I was saying... the day started out completely uneventful initially.  My birthday greetings had started about 2 weeks earlier for some strange reason.  I think some calendars may have given out the notification a bit earlier BUT it started that early.

So like I said, nothing major happened initially.  I kind of planned it that way.  Went for some meetings and had to put my phone on silent mode.  But the minute the meetings were over, I glanced at my phone and the Hub in just enough time to see the many missed calls and messages before both my phones went dead!

The Appalling Sales Technique of Making Money off People's Insecurities! >-(

http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdmluaOe2a1rhlnzgo1_500.jpg

I have written this article several times in my head but felt the need to think clearly before getting to my keyboard else you will feel the raw anger coming through.

I find it completely appalling the way businesses try to prey on people's emotions and insecurities all in a bid to make money!   Over the past year, I have read with disdain several marketing campaigns from various companies blaming women for being the reason their husbands have cheated on them or why their boyfriends left them for "skinnier" women.  

It appears gone are the days when selling a product or service is about trying to make people feel good about themselves and rise to the top of their careers.  It is now about using emotional blackmail and idle indirect threats to make their target market, particularly women, buy what they are offering by hook or by crook!

Take these 3 captions for example...

The NYSC SAED (Skills Acquisition & Entrepreneurship Development) Competition


Hello Everyone!!!  Welcome to undoubtedly the BEST month in the year... for obvious reasons! :-D

And thank you to all the feedback I received from potential students.  Based on your feedback, I have included tabs on the right side of the page (just below the Martwayne logo) with more detailed information on the Training Center and the Courses we run.  Actually I just pretty much copied and pasted from previous posts but nonetheless, it  should be easier to retrieve the information you require now.

Great!  Since it has been a while since I have updated the blog on work-related activities, I thought it would be great to share details of the NYSC-SAED Competition I was invited to as a judge about 2 weeks ago!  :-D
